So, you’ve decided to visit Lancaster’s Amish Country. Did you know, we are located right in the heart of Amish Country? We are walking distance from Kitchen Kettle Village in Intercourse, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Below is a (non-inclusive) list of things you might want to do while visiting the heart of Amish Country and Lancaster County.
The First Friday of every month, Lancaster has a highly popular arts extravaganza every month from 5-9p. Many galleries, studios and museums all keep their doors for your viewing pleasure during that time. Carriage Corner is located a short, easy drive from downtown Lancaster.
Many of the theatres offer our guests a small discount, not to mention other savings such as ticket fees. We are happy to book the best available seats for your enjoyment while you are visiting Lancaster, however, because we have to pre-pay for those tickets, we ask that you do as well. If you’d like us to book your tickets, please add a note in your booking request. Each of the theatres listed above are a short drive from Carriage Corner. Rainbow Comedy Playhouse and Dutch Apple include dinner and American Music Theater; Fulton and Sight and Sound all have several good options for dinner nearby.
Things to Do:
Hot Air Balloon Rides are available at Bird-in-Hand, just a short drive from our Bed & Breakfast – ask us for the discount code.
Intercourse Bikeworks: Bike rentals and maps available. Or sign up for one of their guided tours. We’re anxious to join the Intercourse Amish Dinner Tour, looks like loads of fun! Intercourse Bikeworks is located an easy walk from Carriage Corner.
Village Greens Miniature Golf is one of the many putt-putt golf courses in the area. Mini-golf is our go-to vacation activity.

Most Saturday evenings, you can hop aboard the Wine & Cheese train, this could be a lovely appetizer or possibly your dinner. Check website for schedule.
Kitchen Kettle Village – Kitchen Kettle Village is located a short 15 minute walk from Carriage Corner eliminating the need to deal with traffic and parking at the Kitchen Kettle, allowing you to just get your shop on. On your way, make a stop into the Corner Cafe for a sandwich and milkshake, or stop at Sweet Shenanigans and grab a cupcake to get you the rest of the way there. If coffee is more your style, stop at The Corner Coffee Shop and get a beverage to get you through your shopping.
The Corner Coffee Shop is a rare bird in a town that closes at 6pm, by staying open until 9pm Monday through Saturday. On Friday and Saturday they feature local musical talent from 2 – 4 and again from 7 -9. Depending on the weather, the music may be either inside or out. It’s a lovely way to wind down your day.
Intercourse Yoga Studio offers evening classes – it’s a nice way to unwind after a busy day sight seeing. For other class information, visit their website
We have both a gazebo and swing in the front yard where you can sit back and enjoy watching the buggies go by.
Enjoy the fit pit and comfortable Adirondack chairs in the back for once the sidewalks roll up.
Mr. Carriage Corner is busy putting in horseshoe pits and boccie ball areas for those balmy summer nights when you just don’t want to shop anymore.
Help yourself to fresh cookies and a cup of coffee, tea or cocoa while you curl up in the common area.
